If you are a parent reading this, spending time with your child or children is, without a doubt, one of the most important priorities in your life. As you know, many life-changing events can occur and impact your ability to spend time with your child. For example, a divorce, the end of a non-marital relationship, work schedule changes, moving for a job, etc. In Michigan, the amount of overnight parenting time that you have with your child, along with several other factors, will have a direct impact on the amount of child support that is required to be paid. As a result, parents often take the “all or nothing” approach when arguing about parenting time in an attempt to gain an advantage over the other with regard to child support. Most will find that this approach does not work, because Michigan law presumes that it is in a child’s best interests for the child to have a strong relationship with both of his or her parents.
Often, parents are able to reach an agreement on parenting time which resolves this issue without a hearing. However, even if the resulting parenting time arrangement is not exactly what you want, it is important to remember that this, like custody and child support, is always modifiable upon a showing of proper cause or a change in circumstances.
